Teen Scientists Spend Summer Researching at AUM

by User Not Found | Jul 11, 2014

Five of the River Region’s brightest high school students spent the month of June as paid research assistants in the AUM School of Sciences through its new Secondary Student Research Program for rising high school juniors and seniors. Participants were mentored by AUM science faculty members and learned the basics of scholarly research, establishing the appropriate contexts for their investigations, and were trained in laboratory and/or field research. The program culminated with a research poster presentation on June 27. 

Congratulations 2014 SSRP Participants! 

  • Jayme Williams, Jefferson Davis High School, mentored by Dr. Stacy Parenteau
  • Hydenia Boswell, Brewbaker Technology Magnet High School, mentored by Dr. Pete Haddix

  • Emily Ryan, Wetumpka High School, mentored by Dr. John Aho
  • Ikenna Okeke, Brewbaker Technology Magnet High School, mentored by Dr. Tim Kroft

The program was coordinated by Dr. Haddix, associate professor of biology, who said the School hopes to expand the program to accommodate more participants in 2015.
